Needs some work[edit]

Hi, I just made this based on the similar Jesus template. Still needs some more links to be added. --Yenemus (talk) 16:04, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

The link and phrase "Blessed Virgin Mary" should probably be moved under perspectives (perhaps as the general Christian perspective). That honorific title is representative of a specific POV, and is not a universally accepted title, so it shouldn't be unqualified at the top of the template. Other than that concern, good work on the template! (oh, and the chronology links aren't really about Mary as much as Jesus.)-Andrew c [talk] 15:57, 19 May 2008 (UTC)
I agree with Andrewc's "good work" comment. I think it is good shape now. History2007 (talk) 16:17, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
  • I've cascaded the sections so they they can be either hidden or shown, allows more information to be visible on the page; very good template.Zulatry (talk) 14:40, 8 November 2009 (UTC)

Please do not misquote or replace actual scripture to advance your beliefs, or assume the beliefs or others. To say that most protestants do not refer to Mary as the Mother of God is totally erroneous. Also, to say that Mary remained a virgin for her entire life misquotes scripture. The scripture does not say Mary and your cousins have arrived, it says your mother and brothers.

"Question: "Did Jesus have brothers and sisters (siblings)?"

Answer: Jesus’ brothers are mentioned in several Bible verses. Matthew 12:46, Luke 8:19, and Mark 3:31 say that Jesus’ mother and brothers came to see Him. The Bible tells us that Jesus had four brothers: James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas (Matthew 13:55). The Bible also tells us that Jesus had sisters, but they are not named or numbered (Matthew 13:56). In John 7:1-10, His brothers go on to the festival while Jesus stays behind. In Acts 1:14, His brothers and mother are described as praying with the disciples. Galatians 1:19 mentions that James was Jesus’ brother. The most natural conclusion of these passages is to interpret that Jesus had actual blood half-siblings." credited to gotquestions.org

When in doubt, refer to the actual Bible. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:31, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
